If you need to buy a universal knife that can easily cope with the tasks relevant for hiking, fishing or everyday life in the city, the model Firebird FH13-SS is suitable for this purpose as well as possible.

Knife Ganzo Firebird FH13-SS reviews
I love the action, blade, look, and fit/finish of this knife! Unfortunately, as a left-handed person the lack of a reversible pocket clip means I'm not able to carry this. I wish Ganzo sold the fh12 and fh13 scales that are milled for left-side carry. I understand why they took them off the production run, but it would be nice to buy them aftermarket.
Dear Neal, Thank you a lot for your feedback!
